They are GREAT, I would recomend them to anyone that rides in a lot of mud. It helps out a lot more than some think, well worth the money in my book.

I second that. When the bike is in 2 wheel drive, you don't even know that it is there. When you get in the mud and put it in 4 wheel drive it just pulls. It really works when you need it the most. When you are in a bind and one of the front wheels is off the ground, the bike never hesitates, just keeps pullin. I love it. Next to the tires, I think it is the best mod you can do to your bike.

Yall with the DGL

Did you have HL install them for you? Or did you do them yourself

I see you have to machine down the ring gear.. Theres not a machine shop anywhere around here that I know of.

For the most part, did it myself. Had a buddy with access to a lathe that machined the ring gear down for me. If you are havin trouble finda machine shop in your area, I would suggest lookin into a engine builder or an axle shop. Both should access to a lathe. You might look to see if there is a vocational metal trades school in your area also. I took a class when I was in high school, and they had good equipment to work with.

I am getting some (hopefully) warranty work done on mine at the moment, and the DGL installed at the same time. Got it from the Honda dealer who is a highlifter dealer, for $5 less than highlifter sells it and no shipping charges, but they are about $30 higher than highlifter on the install. Guess it will average out on the price. But after the last time I got stuck because I didnt have 4wd I coughed up the money!

I did everything but the machining of the ring gear, I think that cost me like $40. Not too hard of an install.
